Review: Ms. Marvel, Vol. 6: Civil War II

Ms. Marvel, Vol. 6: Civil War II Ms. Marvel, Vol. 6: Civil War II by G. Willow Wilson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read this one all in one sitting and loved it so much! It's been my favorite Ms. Marvel volume so far, which is great since I am working on a chapter revision about teaching this comic and the Serenity comics. This volume broke my heart, as it's about friendship, duty, consequences, and finding oneself in the midst of chaos and confusion. The storyline touches on so many relevant stories today: the dangers of profiling, the beauty of migration, the importance of immigrant narratives, the power of true friendship, and picking up the pieces when things literally crash and burn. The world didn't end, but it seemed like it was going to. Gee, I wonder why post-apocalyptic stories are big right now ;). Kamala is becoming an even stronger character, and this volume tells more of the back story of her family and of her complex friendship with Bruno. If you don't have it, head to the bookstore ASAP and pick it up! I promise you'll be so glad you did.
